LOUISVILLE -- Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies says it will introduce a new standard product mix this week at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. Johnson’s 2013 product branding focuses on four standard base models that it says are pre-engineered, cost-efficient and lighter in weight than previous models.

The company says its signature polar bear logo inspired its truck body names, including Blizzard, Guardian, Cadet and Majestic. Each model can be customized for a variety of applications with options like emission-free all-electric refrigeration. The bodies offer strength, durability, thermal efficiency and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures,

Blizzard -- Johnson’s most popular truck body series because of its versatility in many markets, the Blizzard claims excellent structural integrity and thermal efficiency. It features a smooth white fiberglass exterior and will keep products fresh during transport at fresh, frozen and deep frozen temperatures.

Guardian -- Often called the reach-in because it is loaded and unloaded from side doors, the Guardian features low floor height to ease access for drivers. Guardian bodies can handle fresh and frozen products, and fits on lighter-duty chassis to help reduce operating costs.

Cadet -- Johnson’s smallest fiberglass composite temperature-controlled truck body, the Cadet fits on a heavy-duty 3/4 or 1-ton pick-up truck. The 8-foot has a rear access door, and is designed for small loads and can carry fresh and frozen products.

Majestic -- Johnson’s insulated composite specialty trailer is available in lengths up to 36 feet with up to three temperature zones. It is designed for food products, beverages, keg beer, temperature controlled medical supplies, animal transport, special events and more.

The 81-year-old company is now a subsidiary of Great Dane Trailers, and will co-exhibit at the show with its parent company in booth #34075 in the south wing of the Kentucky Expo Center.
